I'm sure Snowwolflair put out a similar post earlier but can't find it to reply to.

I am getting frequent blocked outgoing messages using Chrome when viewing the forum.

Report message from Malwarebytes says.....

I've done a search on oocities.org and it seems to be a legit website but- very odd.

I think there must be a link on the site somewhere (possibly in someones signature!!) that the site at the end of the link has been compromised, I've just run a full scan and can find no malware/scams on the N GAUGE forum itself.

If someone could provide me with a screenshot and the full address link from the top browser bar of the exact page they see the error on I will take a look thanks Paul.

Interesting - I have posted a couple of image links that come from that site.  oocities is a harvested cache of the old geocities system.     Should be direct image links to jpegs, not html pages, so should be no html or javascript etc. involved.

Many years ago I set up a club website on geocities, and I can still find images from those pages on oocities.

If it's causing malware alerts, I guess I need to find the original images and upload to my personal site for linking here.

This is my most recent post with such an image:

http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=37164.msg440019#msg440019

Our company systems are pretty hot on such things and I notice they block a lot of hosted images on this forum put up by others, but they're not complaining about the oocities image links.

Fairy nuff, though I think that block is aimed more at the other crud that site seems to include /overlay in web pages  :veryangry:  The direct image links are clean.   

I need to recover those old photos and put them somewhere else anyway.

Just a thought, but are peoples' computers that don't have antimalware/virus protection likely to have been compromised by all this?
 :hmmm: :beers:

It was never a compromise, the pictures are set by people to show on the page you are viewing, so the request goes to the external website to display the picture in the post, malwarebytes is flagging that the site as shown above has some suspect content and is black listed.... You wont get any infections through viewing the picture on the NGF..
